THE Chorley teenager who is charged with the murder of the 18-year-old man from Skelmersdale who was found dead in Parbold woods has been named.
On May 1 last year the body of Alex Davies was found near Parbold Hill.
A few days later Brian Healless was arrested and while 17 was charged with murder.
At the time of his arrest, he was not named because of his age, however as he is now 18, Preston Crown Court Judge Mark Brown has revoked an order banning his identification.
Healless, who has pleaded not guilty to murder and possession of a bladed article, will stand trial on March 11.
